sticker fee), plus an air quality research fee of $1.50 and a vehicle license
tax (VLT). The VLT is based on an assessed value of 60% of the
manufacturer's base retail price reduced by 16.25% for each year since the
vehicle was first registered in Arizona. As of Dec 1, 2000, the rate is
calculated at $2.80 for new vehicles or $2.89 for used ones for each $100 of the
